“Adam Levine praises Avril Lavigne’s ‘I’m With You’ in Zane Lowe interview:
‘That [song] gives you tears… you took it for granted because you were growing up and it was just part of what you had on the radio. There are some really great songs I didn’t understand how good they were.'”
Here’s what Adam Levine said in the interview:
“You look back at the stuff and, it’s funny, I’ve been showing my kid music videos, my little girl. And it’s funny how you go back and re-watch like these old videos, and listen to these old songs, and I’ve been playing her a lot of Avril Lavigne records. Like dude, ‘I’m With You’ is like – it’s, yeah, that gives you tears.
It’s crazy because you won’t remember it the same way because you took it for granted because you were growing up and it was just part of what you had on the radio. But there are some really great songs I didn‘t understand how good they were.”
